    I have a USB cable for the Sanyo 8100, and everything seems hunky-dory when I use the phone with BITPIM -- I can add and subtract pictures and ringtones with no problem. I am wondering what program or procedure there is to install/remove Java Midlets via the USB cable on the Sanyo 8100. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'll reply to my own message here.

    It appears that after searching about this topic for some time, that I can't find an easy way to make this happen. Overwhemingly, the most common answer is to just download the applications over the mobile web (wap / vision). I was intending to not pay the extra for the vision fees (until they ever come out with a cheaper vision-included plan). Utilities like bitpim will let me see the filesystem, and I can certainly transfer ringers and wallpix with no problem, but I still can't natively transfer java apps into the filesystem.

    It seems that the key may lay with getting whatever tools J2ME developers use to place applications on the phone and/or whatever tools the cellular provider uses to put demonstration applications on the phone...

    Otherwise, it's a lost cause, based on the way that the cellular provider has locked down this particular piece of hardware.

    I've got all the drivers working just fine -- indeed, things like bitpim can see the phone.

    I specifically meant the installing of Java MIDP 1.0 applications onto the phone without having to download them over the air.

    It seems like a newer version of Qualcomm's Java Apploader, compared to what I've seen floating around (one that would actually support Sanyo phones), would probably be what I need.

    Have you actually managed to upload midlets via USB cable yet?
    What's my name again? Oh right, I forgot.

    midlets

    you should just download a free midlet and examine where it puts it and what it is named, then find a compatible midlet and put it in using the file system veiw in bitpim.
